Vineyards have dominated the landscape of Elvillar in the Rioja Alavesa for centuries. The limestone-rich soils, while unable to support other types of agriculture, have been vital to supporting vines which impart a certain elegance, power, and freshness to the grapes grown here.
Local native David Sampedro works at sustainable production by reducing yields and the number of conventional treatments in his stunningly pampered vineyards. The wines are vinified in Elvillar, just few kilometers from the vineyards, and they show the authentic local characteristics resulting from high-altitude, cool climate, and pure limestone soils.
